Faux flic en carton à Koh Samui. Il a même sa guirlande électrique, histoire d'être bien vu la nuit... :-D

Unusual Thailand

  Between Two Journeys

Dear English-speaking readers, this page is an automatic Google translation from a post originally written in French. My apologies for the weird sentences and the funny mistakes that could have been generated during the process. If you can read French, the original and correct version can be found here:

This thread on TravelForum.com inspired me the small series of photos here. Unusual or funny scenes, captured during my various trips to the "country of the smile" ... Amazing Thai! (Slogan of the Thai tourist office.)

  1. Woooaaah,
    I swing between depression and nostalgia seeing these pictures!

    And curiously the first Babouk I saw in Thailand was in Tao ... Do you think we met the same? 😯

  2. @ Akway: Oh, I too was nostalgic browsing my photo archives to select these images ... Thanks to you, I discovered the small name of this impressive spider: babouk. I do not know if we saw the same, but one thing is sure: under this climate, the beasties full of paws are broom (cockroaches / cockroaches / cockroaches, who love to squat the bathrooms, are also scary too). In fact, the only animals that I really like in the tropics are the nice mosquito geckos. And then, the cry of the gecko, in the evening, on the terrace of the bungalow, has for me an indefinable charm ...

    @ Martial: Hey, hey, I recognize your persifering spirit! 😆

  3. No reason to fear baboons Corinne,
    they are spiders that do not bite unless they are cornered (they do not weave webs either).
    On the other hand they actively hunt (by running) cockroaches and other cockroaches that are daily meals (the girl has everything to please you). It's like a bottle of Baygon on legs, but without the chemicals 🙂
    Since I know that I'm saving them when I find them in my bungalow.

    cf. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babouk

    Otherwise I better for the song of the gecko at night in the woods, finally if we talk about the same strange sound ...

  4. @ akway:

    I'm not too keen on critters, actually. In general, I let them live their lives, even if I do not like the idea of living with a spider of this size. Thank you for the link!

    I do not want too much spiders to be so ugly, considering how they are useful elsewhere (mosquito-scavengers and cockroaches). I'm saving them too, I'm a friend of the animals!

    As for the song of the gecko, for my part I transcribe it as follows:
